Director's Note, November 26: Talking to your Child about Tragic Events, Next Coffee Chat, Opportunity to Learn about Hot Lunch Program, and More!


Parent Discussion, “Talking to your Child about Tragic Events”
TOMORROW, Tuesday, November 27 from 6:30-7:30pm in MPR
Have you been wondering about how to talk with your child in developmentally appropriate ways when tragedy strikes? What do you say to them about mass shootings? How do you navigate their questions about the fires? Or what do you say to children when they see local tragedy on the news? How much do you share?

Children process tragic events differently, and we want to help you gather the tools to talk with your children in ways that support their emotional wellbeing. It is our pleasure to welcome, parenting and trauma expert, Jennifer Mundy to Bridges tomorrow night for an informative discussion about discussing trauma and grief with your children. This discussion is free and open to the public! Please invite anyone who you feel would benefit!

Harvest Festival Cancelled
So many of our parents worked hard to organize and coordinate the Harvest Festival that was scheduled for the Friday before Thanksgiving break. Because of the lost instructional days and the busyness of the holiday season upon us, we are cancelling the Harvest Festival, and we will begin working with our PAC representatives to discuss a potential alternative activity for the second semester. We are so sorry to have missed this connecting community event.

Upcoming CPK Family Dinner Night
Join us this Wednesday, November 28th between 1-close at California Pizza Kitchen for lunch or dinner. If you tell your server that you are with Bridges Charter School, 20% of the sales purchased will be donated to Bridges’ PAC. We hope to see you there!
